Welcome to Mychal’s Prints!
Mychal’s Prints is a digital print operation that produces custom stamped items like t-shirts, tote bags and mugs for companies, groups and events. Our mission is to provide quality print products that can serve as memorabilia for special events, contribute to team building for groups and companies, and offer unique branding opportunities for marketing. Best of all, Mychal’s Prints will provide crucial employment opportunities for young people with developmental disabilities.
Mychal’s Prints is the newest addition to the job training and work experience program for young adults with developmental disabilities at Mychal’s Learning Place. Those disabilities can make it difficult to train in most traditional job venues. In fact, studies show that the unemployment rate for those with developmental disabilities is a shocking 85%. That’s why Mychal’s Learning Place began launching its own job ventures where young adults have the opportunity to overcome learning barriers and acquire job skills that let them succeed. Mychal’s Prints represents a great addition to that program.
Mychal’s Learning Place opened its doors in Hawthorne, California in July 2002 with an after-school program and added a second site in Culver City in 2006. With the success of our after-school programs, we started the Path to Independence Adult Day Program in June 2013. We have seen wonderful progress in our participants while they learn essential independent living skills and job skills in this program.
In December 2015, we launched Mykie’s Café and Bakery, a mobile coffee and baked goods business where our young adult trainees learn how to be baristas and bakers. In the spring of 2019 we launched Mychal’s Prints. Our goals for both of these ventures include
- Provide appealing products and services to the community
- Create vital job training and employment for individuals with developmental disabilities
- Develop new revenue streams for the non-profit programs at Mychal’s Learning Place
- Create awareness in the community about the abilities of all individuals
Mychal’s Learning Place is a California Non-Profit Corporation, 501(c)3: 95-4871202. Much of our funding comes from Regional Centers and we also depend on our fundraising events, corporate donations and foundation support to cover all our costs.
